Not Black Enough
It's always sort of sad
when something loses its sense of menace. A decade ago, circa
Animal (Fuck Like a Beast),
Blackie Lawless and his brethren were Tipper Gore's proof positive that rock &
roll was evil.
You'd think W.A.S.P.
would stay relevant in the grunge '90's more than most of their metal cronies,
particularly since leader Lawless had a bit of a punk pedigree as a member in
one of the later incarnations of the New York Dolls.
Well, in 1996 W.A.S.P.
are doing covers of the Jefferson Airplane (the hippy-dippy anthem "Somebody to
Love") and Queen. Sort of makes you wish the Parents' Music Resource Center
could have shut the band down when they still had some bite.
